From The Phoenix Collection

Finely twisted leaves with a fruity, smoky, malty scent. The tea comes to a fruity, smoky scent, a wine like taste that differs from a Keemung because of its Chocolaty, more smoky notes. It infuses more than once allowing to experience different nuances.

There’s something great about going back to one of your favorites that gives it that extra pleasure. I love this black tea and would recommend it to anyone who loves chocolate/malty/sweet/fruity aromatic black teas.

I usually get 3-4 steeps from it. First cup is extremely aromatic like caramel and chocolate met in a cup and the taste doesn’t disagree/differs from the scent.

The second cup the leaves open fully giving more taste and aroma with the same steeping time. The scent is more aromatic like dark chocolate, there’s still some caramel like sweetness to it but the scent of dark chocolate takes over as well as some maltiness. The taste becomes much more apparent, not as sweet as the first cup, more malty and heavy and very pleasant.

Third and Fourth steeps. The scent has some chocolate background but the aroma is much more fruity, almost wine like comparable to that of a keemung. The taste is fruity and wine like, not as malty and just hints of chocolate, now that the chocolate taste is fading you can taste a bit of smokiness.

Expensive tea, but if you love black teas I would recommend it to have it on your stash.
